in the united states coast guard in 1939. he served the country during world war ii, rising to the rank of signalman first class. douglas munro was killed in action on september 27, 1942, shielding 500 united states marines from enemy fire during an evacuation. he volunteered to head the boats for the evacuation and he placed himself and his boats as cover for the last marine to leave. during this time, douglas munro was fatally wounded. reportedly he remained conscious long enough to say four words -- did they get off? douglas munro was awarded the medal of honor and the purple heart. the bravery and sacrifice of douglas munro saved hundreds of marines and should be honored and remembered. i think it's appropriate to ensure that he will always be remembered by naming the united states coast guard headquarters in his honor. therefore, i support the passage of this legislation, and i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentlelady from the district of columbia is recognized. ms. norton: mr. speaker, i thank the gentleman for his remarks. th
